Hocking Hills provides a variety of recreational opportunities in a splendid natural setting. The 2,356-acre park has towering cliffs, waterfalls and deep hemlock-shaded gorges to lure the hiker and naturalist and serve as a backdrop to popular facilities and accommodations.
Did this one years ago when I was still married. Was a wonderful trail and one I enjoyed a great deal with the family.
Some of the best hiking in Ohio.
A pretty good trail, heavily used on weekends for sure so pick your time well. The trail is easy to follow. The first 1/4 is what the trail is known for great rock formations and a large amount of well done park trails... here is where you will find most of the crowd. After the second mile the crowds thin a bit, but you will never feel alone. At 2.5 miles we went off trail and climbed up the ridge face to the upper trail which shortened the hike by 3 miles due to our time constraints. The trail is very well marked and easy to follow. The Lake is a very cool area to visit as well. Overall the hike is a good one and worth taking.
I went on a Sunday and it was very crowded with people. I usually go off the main trail when I hike here making it less crowded. It's a very beautiful place and has amazing scenery. It's one of my favorite places to go near me.
This is the Number 1 hiking trail in Ohio and is great for a good reason. Very photogenic! Take the gorge trail from the North falls all the way to Cedar falls then double back or take the Rim trail (directly above Cedar falls) past Rose Lake dam and back. Be sure to also visit Ash Cave while here.
